emma_couture.From the weekend's St. Petersburg Times: Emma Couture's spent the last four months practicing her poker face. The 13-year-old from St. Petersburg placed first in her round on Jeopardy!'s Kids Week in March, leaving her with a cool $15,000 and a big secret — the show was set to air in July, and she couldn't reveal that she'd won until after it aired. Her episode of the iconic game show finally made it on TV Thursday night. Since then, Couture (pictured at left) has been receiving well-wishes from around the country. Full story here.
